Fifth Harmony talk future growth

Fifth Harmony’s sense of self confidence took a long time to appear, and the five-piece band have revealed they are always “continuing to grow”.

The American five-piece’s debut studio album Reflection was released earlier this year and followed their first EP Better Together.

The band have already promised their die hard fans that their next record is already in the pipeline.

"We will be working on our upcoming album this September, actually," Normani Kordei told Bustle. "We’re taking off the whole month to dedicate that time to recording. We can’t give you specifics or details because the creative process and magic doesn’t really happen until that time, being in sessions and studios. But yeah, it’s coming."

The band, made up of Normani, Camila Cabello, Lauren Jauregui, Ally Brooke and Dinah Jane Hansen first shot to fame when they competed on The X Factor in America in 2012, coming third.

Since then, they have released hugely successful singles such as BO$$ and Worth It.

While the girls have become icons for teens struggling to accept their insecurities, they have revealed their quest for self-confidence has been a lengthy one.

“We’re really, really honest, and we talk about confidence, we talk about our journey to confidence because obviously [we were] five teenage girls,” Camila explained. “It wasn’t always that way. We’re continuing to grow. I think it’s going to be really cool for fans to get to see that more vulnerable, more honest side of us."

Despite being icons themselves, the girls still look up to many female celebrities in the industry.

This includes Jennifer Lopez, who has been a particular role model for Latina singer Ally.

“One of my biggest inspirations is Jennifer Lopez because I love what she has done with her career," she said. "She’s opened the door for so many Latinas out there, including myself. She is so hard-working, so dedicated. She’s incredibly passionate and so talented. I love that she doesn’t let anything stop her."
